Linear Gold Commences Drilling at Goldfields Project

Linear Gold Commences Drilling at Goldfields Project


HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA, January 27, 2010: Linear Gold Corp. (TSX: LRR) (“Linear”) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at its Goldfields Mine Development Project, host to Linear’s 100% owned Box and Athona Gold Deposits. The Goldfields Project includes over 25,000 hectares of contiguous property holdings located within a prolific gold-bearing region of Saskatchewan, Canada. The Box and Athona Gold Deposits are being developed as open pit operations with combined Proven and Probable gold reserves of 1,030,400 ounces.
Linear’s planned 2010 drill program will focus on the following objectives:
Drilling will test for additional gold mineralization below the bottom of the proposed Box Mine open- pit. The planned 3000 metre Box Deposit drill program will consist of between 10 to 15 drill holes, initially focusing on areas where potential ore-grade results have been returned from limited drilling completed and reported by GLR Resources Inc. during 2007, including:
Hole B07-292, which returned 2.13 grams per tonne of gold over an estimated true width of 47.81 metres, including 8.35 grams per tonne of gold over 8.60 metres; and
Hole B07-294, which returned 6.32 grams per tonne of gold over an estimated true width of 16.72 metres, including 11.47 grams per tonne of gold over 8.80 metres.
Following the completion of the initial 3000 metre drill program and the return of positive results, a follow-up infill drill program will be designed to incorporate the additional mineralization in to an updated Box Deposit gold resource estimate.
Drilling will follow-up and test geophysical anomalies identified within a planned 840 hectare sector of the Goldfields Project which will be surveyed by the advanced Titan 24 geophysical system. The Induced Polarization (IP) and Resistivity (DCIP) survey, which will be completed in February 2010, has been designed to identify anomalies with the potential to host mineralized systems near the Box and Athona Gold Deposits including the two kilometre area between the deposits. The Titan geophysical system is designed to acquire high-resolution results to depths of approximately 700 metres, depths that are unachievable with conventional geophysics or airborne geophysics. Through processing, inversion and interpretation of results, information can be obtained on conductive mineralization, disseminated mineralization, alteration, structure and geology resulting in highly prospective drill targets.
Drilling will be completed to test the following highly prospective targets:
The down-dip and along strike gold mineralization outside of the proposed design of the Athona Deposit open-pit; and
historic gold occurrences on the property including:
The Golden Pond occurrence, located approximately three kilometres northeast of the Box Deposit, where GLR Resources intersected 5.07 grams per tonne over 15 metres and16.57 grams per tonne over13.6 metres.
Howard Bird, Linear’s Vice President of Exploration, stated: “I am pleased that the Goldfield’s 2010 exploration program has commenced and look forward to the drill results which are expected to add additional ounces to the gold resource at the Box Deposit. Furthermore, the interpretation of three-dimensional model results from the IP geophysical program is expected to identify exciting target anomalies where drill testing may result in the discovery of large-scale bulk-tonnage gold occurrences similar to the Box and Athona Deposits, and/or high-grade gold vein occurrences. Exciting upside potential also exists in the Athona Deposit exploration drill program, as well as the testing of historic gold occurrences.”
The Goldfields project area hosts a wide variety of mineralization and historical underground development, including the Box Mine, which produced as an underground gold mining operation from 1939 to 1942. Twelve additional gold occurrences have been documented on the property. All of the known gold deposits and occurrences are exposed at surface, most of which were discovered through surface prospecting during the 1930’s. The Box and the Athona Deposits, the two known deposits on the property, are located two kilometres apart and will utilize a central processing mill facility. The Box and Athona Deposits are both large multi-million tonne open pit deposits, located on the western flank and near the nose of the Goldfields syncline. Both deposits have potential for increased open pit gold resources and there is good potential for higher grade gold mineralization, which may be suitable for underground mining methods below the proposed open pits.
The Goldfields project area is located 25 kilometres from Uranium City, Saskatchewan, and is serviced by excellent local infrastructure, including an airport, hydro-electric power, telecommunications, a good road system, a field office, a core shack and living quarters with kitchen facilities for the exploration team.

Mining Stocks News - Teck (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) Comments on Red Dog Permit Appeal

Teck (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) Comments on Red Dog Permit Appeal

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--- Jan. 15, 2010 - Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TCK.A and TCK.B, NYSE: TCK) commented on an appeal filed today against the State of Alaska's certification of a water discharge permit recently issued to Teck Alaska's Red Dog Mine by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA").


Two nonprofit law firms joined with local tribal and environmental organizations to file a request for an adjudicatory hearing with the State of Alaska of their appeal of the State's certification of the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit (the mine's main water discharge permit). The appeal asserts that certain permit provisions do not comply with the Clean Water Act. If successful, the appeal could result in revisions to the permit conditions or revocation of the permit. The organizations did not request that the permit be stayed, allowing the certification to remain in effect during adjudication of this specific appeal.
The certification was issued on December 15, 2009, when, in accordance with Section 401 of the Clean Water Act, the State of Alaska certified that the renewed NPDES permit would comply with all applicable State water quality regulations.
"The State and Federal agencies have just completed a very thorough review of water quality issues associated with Red Dog," said Jim Kulas, Manager, Environmental and Public Affairs for Teck. "Based on years of data documenting a healthy downstream environment, in the agencies' judgment, the permit will be fully protective of human health and the environment. Teck believes that the regulatory process has been robust and appropriate."


The NPDES permit was issued by the EPA on January 8, 2010. The appeal period for the NPDES permit expires on February 16, 2010.


The Army Corps of Engineers permit for the Aqqaluk Deposit, the next ore body to be mined at Red Dog, is the only outstanding agency authorization for the next phase of mining at Red Dog. This permit is undergoing final agency review but has not yet been issued. There is no specific period established for an appeal of this permit.
Other state and local permits required for development of Aqqaluk were received in December. The appeal period for those permits has expired without appeal. As previously noted, development of the Aqqaluk Deposit at Red Dog could be delayed as a result of delays in permit issuance or appeals of permits issued. Any delay extending beyond the first quarter of 2010 will likely result in a reduction or interruption of Red Dog production.
Teck and its partner, indigenous landowner NANA Regional Corporation, Inc., continue to communicate with all stakeholders in an effort to respond to concerns raised and to mitigate the risk of an interruption to the Red Dog Operation.
"We are looking forward to completion of this process so that Red Dog can acquire the permits necessary to develop the Aqqaluk Deposit," said Rosie Barr, Resources Manager, NANA Regional Corporation, Inc. "It is my hope that the permitting process stays on schedule so that the essential economic, cultural and social benefits that are provided by the mine can continue. NANA is committed to working with the EPA and our partners at Teck to complete this process and to keep Red Dog operating for our people and the residents of Alaska for another 20 years."

Mining Stocks News- International Northair (TSXV: INM) Prepares for Drill Program at La Cigarra Silver Project, Mexico

International Northair (TSXV: INM) Prepares for Drill Program at La Cigarra Silver Project, Mexico

International Northair Mines Ltd. (TSXV: INM) (the “Company” or “Northair”) announces thatplanning is well underway for the first drill test of the La Cigarra Project (the “Project”), locatedapproximately 26 kilometers from the city of Parral in north central Mexico.

The Company hasrequested bids from three drill contractors for a minimum 1,000 metre reverse circulation drill program tocommence in the first quarter of 2010.The La Cigarra silver project consists of six concessions and is located in State of Chihuahua along theeastern fringes of the Sierra Madre Occidental in Mexico. Reconnaissance and sampling completed byNorthair to date confirm three potentially significant zones of silver mineralization within a 3 kilometretrend. The La Cigarra silver project has good access, topography and infrastructure. Grupo Northair deMexico, S.A. de C.A., a subsidiary of Northair, can acquire a 100% ownership of the concessions bymaking payments over a 5 year period totaling US$445,000 with no royalties.The grades reported at La Cigarra appear to be similar in scale to those of the Santa Barbara-SanFrancisco del Oro sub-districts of Parral that have produced over 440 million ounces of silver.

AlthoughLa Cigarra has probably had very limited silver production, the Parral Region in total has produced overone Billion ounces of silver and over one Million ounces of gold, placing it in the top ten silver districtsin Mexico.Northair has been informed by Great Bear Uranium that it is not proceeding with its option on the ElReventon property.

Mining Stocks News -Novus Gold Corp. (TSX-V: NOV)

Seven Kilometre Long Gold Zone Identified

January 15, 2010 – Vancouver, BC – Novus Gold Corp. (TSX-V: NOV) is pleased to announce surface sampling results from its REN gold property in the Northwest Territories carried out in partnership with Terra Ventures Inc. ("Terra") (TSX-V: TAS). This sampling program traced gold mineralization and iron formation over a length of 7 kilometres.


Just prior to freeze-up, a limited prospecting program was completed on the REN property. A total of 83 samples were collected and submitted for gold analysis. The samples were collected along the more than seven kilometre long iron formation within the REN property that includes the Main occurrence where a recent drill program was carried out. Most of the samples came from known occurrences other than the Main occurrence, however, five samples collected 400 metres northwest of the most northerly gold occurrence, Grizz, reported values between 1.51 and 6.25 g/t and represent a new gold discovery. Grab samples (7) of the Grizz occurrence ranged from 3.10 to 38.40 g/t gold and grab samples (3) collected 300 m south of the Grizz occurrence ranged from 0.02 to 2.13 g/t gold. Two more grab samples were collected a further 500 m south, ranged from 0.53 to 5.27 g/t gold, and were located approximately 300 m north of the geophysical anomaly coincident with the Main occurrence.


The Banner, Flag and Gord occurrences are located along the southern half of the iron formation, more than 3 kilometres south of the Main occurrence. Grab samples (17) collected from the Banner occurrence ranged from 0.07 to 205.00 g/t gold and grab samples (12) collected from the Flag occurrence ranged from 0.02 to 22.40 g/t gold. No samples were collected from the most southerly located Gord occurrence (approximately 5 kilometres south of the Main occurrence), however, previously completed sampling reported a chip sample value of 17.5 g/t across 0.8 metres. The Moore occurrence is situated approximately 1 kilometre south of the Main occurrence. Grab samples (9) collected from the Moore occurrence varied from 0.06 to 2.88 g/t gold. The remaining 33 samples collected ranged from 0.01 to 2.66 g/t gold.
Ongoing reinterpretation of the associations and controls related to the gold occurrences of the REN property has discovered the potential for a high-tonnage low-grade deposit along a more than seven kilometre strike of iron formation. Previous exploration had focused on Lupin-style gold mineralization where gold occurs concentrated in the "nose" of a folded iron formation. Recent drill results acquired from the Main occurrence indicate that significant gold is present in the host rocks adjacent to the iron formation. As a result, the main zone of gold mineralization is now considered to have an apparent width of 8 to 30 metres with gold grades ranging from 2 to 3 g/t. Grab samples collected while prospecting demonstrate that at least portions of the entire seven kilometre long iron formation is associated with significant gold mineralization. As with the exploration completed at the Main occurrence, much of the work evaluating the gold potential of the iron formation focused strictly on high-grade gold in the iron formation, including the recently reported grab samples reported above. The host rock along the seven kilometre long iron formation has not been adequately sampled so as to assess the potential for wide, low-grade gold zones.
Drill hole results from the Main occurrence within the REN property clearly indicate a previously unrecognized wide, low-grade gold zone associated with the iron formation. Gold assay values ranging between 2 to 3 g/t were reported for intersections that ranged from 10.62 to 32.77 metre. Based on previously completed geophysical work, the magnetic and electromagnetic anomaly directly associated with the wide, low-grade gold mineralization, is more than 700 metres long. Drilling has shown the zone to be open at depth.

The REN property hosts banded iron formation gold showings in the Point Lake area, approximately 90 kilometres southwest of the formerly producing Lupin gold mine owned by Echo Bay Mines. Approximately 30 drill holes were completed on gold showings on the REN property between 1974 and 1990 by Texasgulf, Cominco and Westview.

All samples were submitted to ALS Laboratory, North Vancouver, an ISO 17025-accredited laboratory that includes the determination of gold by fire assay and atomic absorption as part of its scope of accreditation. Blanks were added to the submitted samples to test for cross contamination and all samples submitted were reported within acceptable levels.

Novus has granted Terra an option to earn a 51-per-cent interest in the REN property. In order to exercise the option, Terra needed to incur $1.5-million in expenditures on the REN property by Dec. 31, 2009. Terra is in the process of giving Novus confirmation that this has been done. Once Terra formally exercises its option, Novus will have the option to repurchase Terra's 51-per-cent interest by issuing 7.5 million shares to Terra. Based on Novus's current 33,585,000 issued shares, if Novus exercises its option, Terra would have 18.25 per cent of Novus's shares.

Mining Stocks news - Fjordland Exploration Inc.: Gold Fields Exercises Right of First Refusal on Woodjam South, BC

Fjordland Exploration Inc.: Gold Fields Exercises Right of First Refusal on Woodjam South, BC


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA-- Jan. 15, 2010 - Fjordland Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FEX ) and Cariboo Resources Ltd (TSX VENTURE:CRB) , the Woodjam Joint Venture ("WJV") 60%/40% partners, report that Gold Fields Horsefly Exploration Corporation (a member of the Gold Fields Limited group of companies (NYSE:GFI - News)) has provided written notice that it intends to exercise a right of first refusal with respect to the WJV's Woodjam South copper-gold property. This offer matches one presented by another major international mining company.


Pursuant to the offer, Gold Fields can earn a 51% interest in the Woodjam South Property in consideration for expending US$7 million on exploration over 42 months and the purchase of a total of C$500,000 of common shares of the WJV partners, which will be divided relative to their interests. The offer includes the right to increase the earned interest to 70% by financing a bankable feasibility study. The transaction is subject to due diligence and the execution of a definitive agreement. A draft agreement is expected shortly; its terms will be released upon signing.
Gold Fields right of first refusal is contained in the existing Option and Joint Venture Exploration Agreement relating to the adjoining Woodjam North Property. The WJV recently released drill results which is part of a comprehensive exploration program budgeted at $3 million and operated by Gold Fields on this 40,750-hectare property (see January 12, 2010 News Release for details). Drilling is scheduled to resume in early February.

The 13,807-hectare Woodjam South Property includes the Southeast Zone, discovered in late 2007 by the WJV partners. Drilling of 7,700 m in 18 holes during 2007 and 2008 of a large, 1.5 km by 1 km, induced polarization (IP) target tested a length of 1000 m, a width of 500 m and to a depth of 700 m. Fifteen of these holes were drilled on a grid pattern 600 m by 300 m. Porphyry-style copper-gold-molybdenum mineralization was intersected from the bedrock surface to the end of the hole in all 18 holes. The best intercepts (hole 08-84) included: 359.1 m grading 0.69% Cu, 0.27 g/t Au and 0.006% Mo, including 200.8 m grading 1.01% Cu, 0.44 g/t Au and 0.002% Mo. Less than one quarter of the IP anomaly has been tested. During 2009, no drilling was carried out at Woodjam South. A high resolution, low level airborne magnetometer survey was completed over the property and several prospective new anomalies were identified.
Tom Schroeter, President of Fjordland commented, "The earn-in proposal for the WJV's Woodjam South Property by a major international mining company and the subsequent notice to exercise its right of first refusal by Gold Fields represents another important step in the WJV's objective of advancing the entire Woodjam property without significant equity dilution."

Firestone Ventures (TSX VENTURE: FV.V)(FRANKFURT:F5V) Acquires Antelope Zinc-Lead-Silver Oxide Property

Firestone Ventures (TSX VENTURE: FV.V)(FRANKFURT:F5V) Acquires Antelope Zinc-Lead-Silver Oxide Property

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--Jan. 12, 2010) - Firestone Ventures Inc. ("Firestone" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: FV.V)(FRANKFURT:F5V) is pleased to announce that it has signed formal agreements with two underlying vendors to earn a 100% interest in the 58.5 hectare Antelope zinc-lead-silver oxide project located 75 km southwest of Eureka, Nevada, U.S.A.


"The road-accessible Antelope project presents Firestone with a promising zinc oxide project in one of the most mining-friendly jurisdictions in the world. This is an early stage exploration project, but with our in-house expertise in zinc oxide exploration we can efficiently evaluate the zinc tonnage potential of Antelope," says Lori Walton, President of Firestone Ventures Inc. "Although our focus will remain in Guatemala we are excited about the possibility of adding to our Company's zinc tonnage through identification of base metal resources on an international scale."
Zinc mineralization hosted in lower Ordovician Hanson Creek Formation was discovered on the Antelope property in the 1980's followed by reverse circulation drilling between 1985 and 1990. Since then, intermittent geologic mapping and geochemical sampling was carried out by various parties. Zinc mineralization (smithsonite with minor sphalerite and galena) is exposed in a 15 metre long trench trending east-west and in a series of prospect pits over a 1.2 kilometre window of outcropping Paleozoic limestone.
During a due diligence visit by Firestone in August, 2009, five continuous chip samples were collected from smithsonite exposed at the bottom of the 15 metre long trench. The five chip samples (each sample taken over 3 metres) contained from 22.3% to 32% zinc and from 1.51% to 3% lead over 15 metres. The orientation of the smithsonite exposed in the trench is unknown. The highest silver value was 2.6 grams/tonne.
Eight additional rock chip samples were collected on the property. Six of the eight chip samples ranging from 1.0 metre to 3.0 metres returned zinc values of over 5.5% up to a maximum value of 20.7%. Seven of the eight chip samples returned lead values over 1,000 ppm (0.10%) up to a maximum value of 2.4% lead. Silver values were generally low (less than 1.4 grams/tonne).
Zinc mineralization at Antelope is a replacement of carbonate rocks, similar to the Company's Torlon Hill zinc-lead-silver deposit in Guatemala. Firestone is compiling and re-interpreting historic data sets and plans to design a surface exploration program that will define potential drill targets.
Terms of the Agreement
Under the terms of the Lease Option Agreement with the first underlying vendor to earn 100% interest in six of the lode mineral claims comprising the Antelope property, Firestone must make cash payments to the vendor totalling USD$83,340 over five years according to the following schedule (all amounts in U.S Dollars); $5,840 on signing, $7,500 by Year One Anniversary, $10,000 by Year Two Anniversary, $15,000 by Year Three Anniversary, $20,000 by Year Four Anniversary and $25,000 by the end of Year Five, and in subsequent years as an advance royalty. In addition, Firestone must incur $10,000 in exploration expenditures during Year One, $15,000 during Year Two and $25,000 in Year Three and subsequent Years. A 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty is reserved for the owner, of which half may be purchased anytime by Firestone for USD $1.5 million. If Firestone purchases the owner's first 1% NSR, Firestone then has the option to purchase the remaining 1% NSR for $1.5 million.
In addition, Firestone has entered into a Lease Option Agreement with a second vendor to earn a 100% interest in one overlapping lode mineral claim covering the main mineralized zone. Under the terms of the Agreement, Firestone must issue to the underlying vendor cash payments totalling $82,500 over five years according to the following schedule; $5,000 on signing, $7,500 by Year One Anniversary, $10,000 by Year Two Anniversary, $15,000 by Year Three Anniversary, $20,000 by Year Four Anniversary and $25,000 by the end of Year Five and in subsequent years as an advance royalty. A 2% NSR is reserved for the owner. Firestone can purchase the owner's NSR anytime for $2.0 million.
All rock samples were analyzed by the Inspectorate Lab in Sparks, Nevada using 30 element ICP, AA for Pb, Cu and Zn and FA/AA for gold and silver.
John Cleary, (CPG), Firestone's Vice President Exploration and Qualified Person in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 has reviewed and approved the technical content of this news release.

Firestone Ventures (FV:TSX-V; F5V:FSE) Completes Phase One Exploration Program for Zinc-Lead in Guatemala

Firestone Ventures (FV:TSX-V; F5V:FSE) Completes Phase One Exploration Program for Zinc-Lead in Guatemala


Jan. 8, 2010 - Firestone Ventures Inc. (“Firestone” or the “Company”) (FV:TSX-V; F5V:FSE) is pleased to announce that the first phase of its 2009/2010 zinc-lead-silver regional mineral exploration program is now complete. Field crews collected a total of 149 rock samples, 26 stream sediment samples and 1,033 soil samples from the Company’s land holdings in western and central Guatemala. Results are expected in January, 2010 and targets for follow-up exploration and potential drilling will be prioritized. Field crews will remobilize in mid-January to continue with regional exploration mapping and sampling programs concurrent with targeted drilling.

In addition, consultants Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited completed processing of Aster satellite data to map colour anomalies on the ground that compared favorably with areas of known zinc mineralization, such as the Torlon Hill zinc-lead-silver deposit. The spectral analysis resulted in the detection of anomalies along the carbonate belt, some of which have been selected for follow-up sampling on the ground.

“Field crews concentrated on the geological mapping and sampling of selected historic zinc occurrences,” says Lori Walton, President of Firestone Ventures Inc. “We are very excited about identifying new drill targets in Guatemala in addition to in-fill and expansion drilling at our Torlon Hill zinc-lead-silver deposit. The increase in the prices of zinc and lead since the economic collapse in late 2008 has been remarkable and Firestone is ideally positioned to benefit from strengthened demand for these metals.”

The price of zinc has increased from USD $0.55/lb (USD $1213/tonne) in early 2009 to the current price of over USD $1.15/lb (USD $2535/tonne). Global consumption of zinc has increased with economic recovery and massive construction and infrastructure programs introduced through economic stimulus programs in several countries.

Zinc's most important industrial use is to protect steel from corrosion (through alloying or galvanizing) to make it last longer. The average automobile contains over 40 pounds of zinc. Zinc is also used to make sheet metal roofing material, pails, garbage cans, door handles and batteries and is used in oxide form as a filler in rubber and as an additive in sunscreen. Zinc is an essential element in the human body and is vital for healthy growth in children.

Zinc Potential in Guatemala
A belt of Permian to Cretaceous carbonate rocks extending over 200 km across western and central Guatemala hosts numerous zinc occurrences and historic small-scale zinc oxide and sulphide mines. The district is virtually unexplored using modern exploration methods and its exploration and economic potential is considered excellent. On a global scale, a comparison of style and geological setting shows striking similarities of the zinc-lead district in Guatemala to economically significant zinc districts in Yemen, Iran and China.

Independent consultants Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited state that it is “very likely” that additional non-sulphide zinc will be found through on-going systematic exploration of Firestone’s large land package totalling over 500 square kilometres in key areas of the historic zinc districts. In addition, the regional setting has considerable potential for conventional Mississippi Valley-Type (MVT) zinc-lead sulphide mineralization. MVT deposits typically occur in clusters or districts with multiple deposits over hundreds of square kilometers having similar geological settings.


About the Torlon Hill Zinc-Lead-Silver Deposit
The 100% owned road-accessible Torlon Hill zinc-lead-silver deposit is 22 km from the Pan-American Highway in western Guatemala. Firestone was the first company to drill the property. Torlon Hill is an intensely oxidized zinc-lead (plus silver) deposit hosted in Permian dolostone breccia and limestone. The carbonate unit has been tectonically thrust over a serpentinized basement sequence at the boundary between the North American Tectonic Plate and the Caribbean Plate. The “tectonic crush zone” is pervasively mineralized with thick zones returning in excess of 10% zinc and locally up to 40%. Smithsonite (ZnCO3) is the predominant ore mineral, occurring as a replacement to dolostone and limestone. Throughout the deposit, silver-rich galena veinlets cross-cut the pervasive zinc-replacement mineralization.

To date, a total of 8,400 metres in 101 holes has been drilled at the Torlon Hill zinc-lead deposit. The combined measured and indicated zinc-lead-silver oxide mineral resource totals 1,891,636 tonnes grading 7.32% zinc, 2.41% lead and 14.25 g/t silver (at a 3% zinc-equivalent cutoff). An additional 169,705 tonnes is classified as inferred resources grading 4.42% zinc, 1.96% lead and 12.53 g/t silver.

The Torlon deposit also contains a basal zone of unoxidized sulphide mineralization. The basal zone includes a combined measured and indicated sulphide resource totalling 76,054 tonnes averaging 3.23% zinc, 2.6% lead and 12.50 g/t silver and a further 36,291 tonnes classified as inferred resources averaging 2.79% zinc, 2.03% lead and 10.47 g/t silver (see news release Nov. 18, 2008). The deposit is open to expansion and high-grade zinc mineralization defined by the mineral resource is on or near surface.

The Company is continuing collaborative work with local communities on social-economic initiatives, upgrading existing access roads and stream crossings along with the coordination of local supplies and services.

The news release has been reviewed and approved by John Cleary, (CPG), Qualified Person for the Torlon Hill project and by Al Workman, P.Geo., Vice President of Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited and the Independent Qualified Person for the project in accordance with regulations under National Instrument 43-101.

GOLDCORP (TSX: G; NYSE: GG) ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT WITH NEW GOLD INC. TO AQCUIRE XSTRATA’S 70% INTEREST IN THE EL MORRO PROJECT

GOLDCORP (TSX: G; NYSE: GG) ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT WITH NEW GOLD INC. TO AQCUIRE XSTRATA’S 70% INTEREST IN THE EL MORRO PROJECT

(All amounts in US dollars unless otherwise indicated)

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, January 7, 2010 – Goldcorp Inc. (TSX: G; NYSE: GG) today announced the execution of a binding agreement (the “Agreement”) with New Gold Inc. (“New Gold”), whereby New Gold will exercise its right of first refusal and acquire the 70% interest in the El Morro project held by Xstrata Copper Chile S.A. (“Xstrata Chile”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Xstrata Plc. Goldcorp will advance $463 million to New Gold to fund the exercise of the right of first refusal by a New Gold subsidiary. Following the acquisition of the 70% interest by the New Gold subsidiary, Goldcorp will acquire that subsidiary from New Gold. Goldcorp will pay New Gold $50,000,000 in cash upon closing of the subsidiary acquisition, and has agreed to amend certain terms of the El Morro Shareholders Agreement, including with respect to New Gold’s capital funding obligations.


El Morro is an advanced stage copper-gold project located in a mining friendly jurisdiction in north-central Chile, Region III, approximately 80 kilometres east of the city of Vallenar. On a 100% basis, El Morro contains proven and probable reserves of 6.7 million ounces of gold and 5.7 billion pounds of copper(1), with an additional 2.2 million ounces of gold and 1.0 billion pounds of copper in the measured and indicated resource categories(1).“In El Morro, Goldcorp has identified an ideal project with which to re-enter one of the best mining jurisdictions in South America,” said Chuck Jeannes, Goldcorp President and Chief Executive Officer. “The foundation of our peer-leading growth profile is built on high quality, long-lived assets with low cash costs in politically stable jurisdictions throughout the Americas. As well, we look for large land positions with strong organic growth potential. By all of these measures, El Morro is a natural fit for our company.With full construction of Peñasquito nearing completion, the project team that delivered what will be one of the largest mines in the world on schedule and on budget will now bring their considerable expertise to bear in building this major project. Our strong balance sheet provides the freedom to begin advancing El Morro toward commercial production immediately upon the closing of this transaction, and we look forward to working with New Gold to develop this project for the benefit of the shareholders of both companies.”


Upon completion of the transactions, which are subject to customary closing conditions and are anticipated to close within 15 business days of the execution of the sale agreement, Goldcorp will hold 70% and New Gold 30% of the El Morro project.


Goldcorp’s financial advisors are GMP Securities L.P. and its legal advisors are Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP in Canada.
(1) El Morro’s mineral reserves and resources are reported as of March 31, 2008. Mineral reserves have been calculated based on a gold price of $500/oz, a copper price of US$1.25/lb and a cut-off of 0.30% copper-equivalent (“EqCu”) where: EqCu(%) = Cu(%) + 0.592 x Au (g/t) and Cu(%) = percent copper and Au(g/t) = grams per tonne gold. The Qualified person as defined under NI43-101 is Mr. Richard J. Lambert, P.E and formerly Principal Mining Engineer for Pincock, Allen & Holt Inc., currently Executive VP with Scott Wilson Roscoe Postle Associates. Mineral resources have been estimated based on US$500/oz gold, US$1.25/lb copper and a grade cut-off of 0.3% copper-equivalent (“EqCu”) where: EqCu(%) = Cu(%) + 0.592 x Au (g/t) and Cu(%) = percent copper and Au(g/t) = grams per tonne gold. Mineral resources are based on an economically constrained “mineral resource pit” that uses the same cost and metal recovery parameters used to define mineral reserves as described in the May 2008 NI 43-101 technical report for the project. Mineral resources are exclusive of mineral reserves. The Qualified person as defined under NI43-101 is Mr. Barton G. Stone, P. Geo and Chief Geologist for Pincock, Allen & Holt Inc.
